I am absolutely thrilled with the trick-or-treat bags I created this weekend. I decided to make the bag out of burlap and used a LARGE bowl to help draw the basic pattern for the bag. I used orange flannel to trim off the top with black ribbon for the handles. Then it was time to embellish!
I knew I wanted to personalize each bag with the girls names. I used my Slice to cut out the patterns for the letters. Love when I can use tools for scrapbooking with other types of crafting.
I really was wishing I had some heat n bond for these letters, but I managed with what I had. Note to self need to restock that in my craft arsenal!
After creating some patterns to embellish the front of each bag, I laid out the pattern pieces to ensure a great fit.
Ella requested a pumpkin bag. I am really happy with the results and most important so is she!
Natalie requested a witch with bats on her bag. She is excited to collect candy next weekend with her new bag!
There is still 1 week before Halloween ... there is still time to create heirloom trick-or-treat bags...or save the idea for next year. It will make a great gift!
Hope you are having a fun creative weekend!
